Main article: Timeline of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation

In 1929, the Aird Commission on public broadcasting recommended the creation of a national radio broadcast network. A major concern was the growing influence of American radio broadcasting as U.S.-based networks began to expand into Canada. Graham Spry and Alan Plaunt lobbied intensely for the project on behalf of the Canadian Radio League. In 1932 the government of R.B. Bennett established the CBC’s predecessor, the Canadian Radio Broadcasting Commission (CRBC).

The CRBC took over a network of radio stations formerly set up by a federal Crown corporation, the Canadian National Railway. The network was used to broadcast programming to riders aboard its passenger trains, with coverage primarily in central and eastern Canada. On November 2, 1936, the CRBC became a full Crown corporation and gained its present name. Leonard Brockington was the CBC's first chairman.

For the next few decades, the CBC was responsible for all broadcasting innovation in Canada. It introduced FM radio to Canada in 1946. Television broadcasts from the CBC began on September 6, 1952, with the opening of a station in Montreal, Quebec (CBFT), and a station in Toronto, Ontario (CBLT) opening two days later. The CBC’s first privately owned affiliate television station, CKSO in Sudbury, Ontario, launched in October 1953. (At the time, all private stations were expected to affiliate with the CBC, a condition that relaxed in 1960–61 with the launch of CTV.)

From 1944 to 1962 the CBC operated two English-language AM radio services known as the Trans-Canada Network and the Dominion Network. The latter, carrying lighter programs including American radio shows, was dissolved in 1962, while the former became known as CBC Radio. (In the late 1990s, CBC Radio was rebranded as CBC Radio One and CBC Stereo as CBC Radio Two. The latter was re-branded slightly in 2007 as CBC Radio 2.) The Trans-Canada Network was the name assigned to the main English-language radion network of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation to distinguish it from the CBCs second network, the Dominion Network. ...

On July 1, 1958, CBC’s television signal was extended from coast to coast. The first Canadian tv show shot in colour was the CBC's own The Forest Rangers in 1963. However, colour television broadcasts did not begin until July 1, 1966, and full-colour service began in 1974. In 1978, CBC became the first broadcaster in the world to use an orbiting satellite for television service, linking Canada “from east to west to north.” Since the 1970s, the CBC has not maintained its dominance in broadcasting it formerly had, but it still plays an important role.

The CBC’s cultural influence, like that of many public broadcasters, has waned in recent decades. This is partly due to severe budget cuts by the Canadian federal government, which began in the late 1980s and levelled off in the late 1990s. It is also due to industry-wide fragmentation of TV audiences (the decline of network TV generally, due to the rise in specialty channel viewership, as well as the increase of non-TV entertainment options such as video games, the Internet, etc.). Private networks in Canada face the same competition, but their rate of viewership decline is less than that of CBC Television. In English-speaking Canada, the decline in CBC viewership can be partly attributed to the fact that private TV networks primarily rebroadcast popular American programming with substituted Canadian advertising. American programs appear to attract much higher audiences than much of the made-in-Canada programming that is a CBC specialty.


Viewership on the CBC’s French TV network has also declined, mostly because of stiff competition from private French-language networks. Audience fragmentation is another issue – French Canadians prefer home-grown television programming, a vibrant Quebec star system is in place, and little American or foreign content airs on French-language networks, public or private. On the other hand, the CBC’s French-language radio channel is sometimes the top-rated network. French Canadian is a term that has several different connotations. ...

In the case of breaking news, including federal elections, the CBC may still hold a slight edge. For instance, after election night 2006, CBC Television took out full-page newspaper ads claiming that 2.2 million Canadians watched their coverage, more than any other broadcaster. However, in similar ads, CTV also claimed to be number one, stating there was a CBC audience of only 1.2 million. In both cases, the methodologies were not clear from the ads, such as whether simulcasts on one or both of the networks’ news channels (Newsworld for CBC, Newsnet for CTV) were counted.

Frontier Coverage Package

Starting in 1967 and continuing until the mid-1970s, the CBC provided limited television service to remote and northern communities. Transmitters were built in a few locations and carried a four-hour selection of black-and-white videotaped programs each day. The tapes were flown into communities to be shown, then transported to other communities, often by the "bicycle" method used in television syndication. Larger to other communities underwent only a one-week transportation delay, while smaller communities waited up to a month to receive tapes. In the television industry (as in radio), syndication is the sale of the right to broadcast programs to multiple stations, without going through a broadcast network. ...


The first FCP station was started in Yellowknife in 1967, the second in Whitehorse in 1968. Additional stations were added from 1969 to 1972 mostly because of help from many people who helped contribute to the addition of stations. Most stations were fitted for the Anik satellite signal during 1973, carrying 12 hours of colour programming. Broadcasts were geared to either the Atlantic time zone (UTC-4 or 3) or the Pacific time zone (UTC-8 or 7) even though the audience resided in communities in time zones varying from UTC-5 to UTC-8.

Some of these stations used non-CBC callsigns such as CFWH-TV in Whitehorse, while some others used the standard CB_T callsign.

In broadcasting and radio communication, a callsign or call sign (also call letters) is a unique designation for a transmitting station. ... CFWH is the television call sign for the CBCs television station in Whitehorse, Yukon. ...


It would be many years before TV programs originated in the north without the help of the west, starting with one half-hour per week in the 1980s with Focus North and graduating to a daily half-hour newscast, Northbeat, in the late 1990s.

Logos

When the creation of the CBC "gem" logo was in its planning stages in 1974, logo creator Burton Kramer put together an early version of the network's ID where the C part of the logo zoomed away from the viewer toward the centre of the screen, followed by the other parts of the logo in similar fashion until the complete logo formed on a black background, with the name "Television Canada" (possibly a planned change of name for the CBC's television units at the time) appearing beneath it. [3]


Although that version of the network ID was not used, the well-known version of the ID (with the logo kaleidoscopically morphing into its form while radiating outward from the centre of the screen on a blue background) made its TV debut on the CBC's English and French networks in December 1974. Some refer to this animated version as "The Exploding Pizza".[4] The jingle initially used for the ID was a three-note synthesized jingle with an announcer saying "This is CBC" or "Ici Radio-Canada" at the end of the ID,[citation needed] but that short-lived jingle was replaced around 1976 by the more well-known eleven-note jingle, which lasted until December 31, 1985. The same jingle was also used on CBLT's 1981 "Grid" ident, but without voiceover. CBLT is the television call sign for the CBCs television station in Toronto, Ontario. ...


The updated one-colour version of the gem logo was introduced on January 1, 1986, and with it was introduced a new series of computer graphic-generated TV IDs for CBC and Radio-Canada, with different background colours corresponding to the time of day behind a CG translucent CBC gem logo and different arrangements of the CBC's new, orchestrated five-note jingle. When the CBC logo was updated to its current form in 1992, new TV IDs were introduced in November that year, also using CG.


Nicknames

As the oldest currently operating Canadian broadcaster, and still the largest in terms of national availability of its various networks, the nickname “Mother Corp” and variants thereof are sometimes used in reference to the CBC.[5]


A popular satirical nickname for the CBC, commonly used in the pages of Frank, is “the Corpse.” Frank is a bi-weekly Canadian scandal or satirical magazine, inspired by and often compared to the British Private Eye. ...


There is an urban legend that a CBC announcer once referred to the network on the air as the “Canadian Broadcorping Castration,” which also sometimes remains in use as a satirical nickname. Quotations of the supposed spoonerism are wildly variable in detail on what was said, when it was said or even who the announcer was, but there is no evidence to confirm its existence. (Although a few recordings do exist of an announcer speaking this phrase, none has ever been confirmed as authentic.) For other uses, see Urban legend (disambiguation). ... A spoonerism is a play on words in which corresponding consonants, vowels, or morphemes are switched (see metathesis). ...


The Conservative Party referred to it as the “Communist Broadcasting Corporation” for the supposed left-wing bias in its news coverage. Conversely, some have referred to the CBC as the “Corporate Broadcasting Corporation” for an alleged free market bias, though the CBC is largely publicly funded.[6] The Conservative Party of Canada (French: Parti conservateur du Canada), colloquially known as the Tories, is a conservative political party in Canada, formed by the merger of the Canadian Alliance and the Progressive Conservative Party of Canada in December 2003. ... A free market is an idealized market, where all economic decisions and actions by individuals regarding transfer of money, goods, and services are voluntary, and are therefore devoid of coercion and theft (some definitions of coercion are inclusive of theft). Colloquially and loosely, a free market economy is an economy...


The CBC was also jokingly called BBC Canada during the 2005 lockout by Canadians and CBC workers due to the large amount of British content then aired in place of the regular schedule. BBC Canada is a general entertainment Canadian category 2 digital cable television channel. ...


The CBC has also been mistakenly referred to as the Canadian Broadcasting Company.[7]

Finance

For the fiscal year 2006, the CBC received a total of $1.53 billion from all revenue sources, including government funding, subscription fees, advertising revenue, and other revenue (e.g. real estate).


Funding

Among its revenue sources for the year ending March 31, 2006, the CBC received $946 million in its "permanent" funding from the federal government, as well as $60 million in one-time supplementary funding for programming. However, this supplementary funding has been repeated annually, on a year-to-year basis, for a number of years. This totals just over a billion dollars annually, a source of heated debates. This differs from the public broadcasters of many European nations, which collect a licence fee, or those in the United States, such as PBS and NPR, which receive some public funding but rely to a large extent on voluntary contributions from individual viewers and listeners. This article is about a licence that is required to own or operate a television or radio. ... Not to be confused with Public Broadcasting Services in Malta. ... NPR logo For other meanings of NPR see NPR (disambiguation) National Public Radio (NPR) is a private, not-for-profit corporation that sells programming to member radio stations; together they are a loosely organized public radio network in the United States. ...


To supplement this funding, the CBC’s television networks and websites sell advertising, while cable/satellite-only services such as Newsworld additionally collect subscriber fees, in line with their privately owned counterparts. CBC’s radio services do not sell advertising except when required by law (for example, to political parties during federal elections).


For the fiscal year 2006, the CBC received a total of $1.53 billion from all revenue sources. Expenditures for the year included $616 million for English TV, $402 million for French TV, $126 million for specialty channels, a total of $348 million for radio services in both languages, $88 million for management and technical costs, and $124 million for "amortisation of property and equipment".

The CBC's critics frequently point to the billion-dollar figure to suggest that the corporation is wasting taxpayer dollars to provide a service that, in their view, is duplicated by private broadcasters, noting that the CBC's TV networks can also access advertising revenues — whereas private broadcast networks have been able to draw higher ratings using only ad revenue.


The network's defenders note that the CBC's mandate is in fact different than that of private media, including its focus on Canadian content; that much of the public funding actually goes to the radio networks; and that the CBC is responsible for the full cost of most of its primetime programming, while private networks can fill up most of their prime-time schedules with American series acquired for a fraction of their production cost. CBC supporters also claim that additional, long-term funding is required to provide better Canadian dramas and improved local programming.


The $616 million budget for CBC Television is in fact smaller than, for example, the $656 million in revenues[9] earned by private broadcaster CanWest Global for its various television operations in fiscal 2006, considered an "off" year for CanWest's Global and CH networks, which trailed rival CTV's ratings by a wide margin.[10] CanWest Global Communications Corp. ...

Some stations that broadcast from smaller cities are private affiliates of the CBC, that is, stations which are owned by commercial broadcasters and air a predominantly CBC schedule. However, most affiliates of the English network opt out of some network programs to air local programming or more popular foreign programs acquired from other broadcasters.

Labour issues

During the summer of 1981 there was a major disruption of CBC programming as the union went on strike. Local newscasts were cut back to the bare minimum. This had the effect of delaying the debut of the 10 p.m. news hour of The National and The Journal, which had to wait until January 1982.


On 15 August 2005, 5,500 employees of the CBC (about 90%) were locked out by CBC CEO Robert Rabinovitch in a dispute over future hiring practices. At issue were the rules governing the hiring of contract workers in preference to full time hires. The locked-out employees were members of the Canadian Media Guild, representing all production, journalistic and on-air personnel outside Quebec and Moncton, including several foreign correspondents. While CBC services continued during the lockout, they were comprised primarily of repeats, with news programming from the BBC and newswires. Major CBC programs such as The National and Royal Canadian Air Farce were not produced during the lockout. Meanwhile, the locked-out employees produced podcasts and websites such as CBCunplugged.com, which many credited with swaying public opinion to the union’s side.[citation needed] This article is about the day of the year. ...

The CBC has been struck by a number of other labour disputes since the late 1990s:

  • A similar dispute, again involving all technicians outside Quebec and Moncton, occurred in late 2001 and concluded by the end of the year.
  • In spring 2002, on-air staff in Quebec and Moncton (again, on both English and French networks) were locked out by local management, leaving, among other things, NHL playoff games without commentary on French television.

While all labour disputes resulted in cut-back programming and numerous repeat airings, the 2005 lockout may have been the most damaging to CBC. All local programming in the affected regions was cancelled and replaced by abbreviated national newscasts and national radio morning shows. BBC World (television) and World Service (radio) and Broadcast News feeds were used to provide the remainder of original news content, and the CBC website was comprised mainly of rewritten wire copy. Some BBC staff protested against their material being used during the CBC lockout. “The NUJ and BECTU will not tolerate their members’ work being used against colleagues in Canada,” said a joint statement by BBC unions.

Cultural significance

The CBC was the only television network broadcasting in Canada until the creation of ITO, a short-lived predecessor of today's CTV, in 1960; even then, large parts of Canada did not receive CTV service until the late 1960s or early 1970s. The CBC also had the only national radio network. Its cultural impact was therefore significant since many Canadians had little or no choice for their information and entertainment other than from these two powerful media. CTV is a Canadian English language television network. ...


Even after the advent of commercial television and radio, the CBC has remained one of the main elements in Canadian popular culture through its obligation to produce Canadian based TV and radio programmes for mass audiences. The CBC has made programmes for minority interests in drama, performance arts, documentaries, current affairs, entertainment and sport.


The main objective has been to provide a service to the Canadian public, which cannot be achieved by importing American programming. This has changed the public's perception in a wide range of subjects including health and natural history. By maintaining an enviable high standard, the CBC has also defined a quality in news coverage that the private broadcasters have not been able to reach. In addition, the export of some CBC programmes such as Little Mosque and Da Vinci's Inquest, has meant that the cultural impact of the CBC has been experienced world-wide.


Although the CBC has had an impact on society in Canada, the society has also changed the CBC. Beleaguered and criticized as it has often been throughout its history, nevertheless, the CBC has been one of the bulwarks of a distinctive Canadian identity ever since its creation in the 1930s. If, at times, the sense of identity on CBC radio and television has seemed insecure and ambiguous, this only reflected the uncertainties of Canadians themselves. The CBC for over fifty years has intimately associated itself with the vicissitudes and anxieties of Canada's search for itself. [6]


The 1950s saw the CBC providing hands-on training and employment for actors, writers, and directors in the developing field of its television dramatic services, and later saw much of the talent heading south to seek fame and fortune in New York and Hollywood.


Competition from private broadcasters like CTV, Global, and other broadcast television stations and specialty channels, have slightly lessened the CBC's reach, but nevertheless it remains a major influence on Canadian popular culture. According to the corporation's research, 92% of Canadians consider the CBC an essential service. [7] CTV is a Canadian English language television network. ... Worldwide redirects here. ...

Controversies

Closed captioning

CBC Television was an early leader in broadcasting programming with closed captioning for deaf and hard-of-hearing viewers, airing its first captioned programming in 1981.[12] Captioned programming in Canada began with the airing of Clown White in English- and French-language versions on CBC Television and Radio-Canada, respectively. (Most sources list that event as occurring in 1981,[13] while others list the year as 1982[14]). A commonly-used symbol indicating that a program or movie is closed-captioned. ... The word deaf can have very different meanings depending on the background of the person speaking or the context in which the word is used. ... This article is about hearing impairment in the pathological sense. ...


In 1997, Henry Vlug, a deaf lawyer in Vancouver, filed a complaint with the Canadian Human Rights Commission alleging that an absence of captioning on some programming on CBC Television and Newsworld infringed on his rights as a person with a disability. A ruling in 2000 by the Canadian Human Rights Tribunal, which later heard the case, sided with Vlug and found that an absence of captioning constituted discrimination on the basis of disability.[15] The Tribunal ordered CBC Television and Newsworld to caption the entirety of their broadcast days, “including television shows, commercials, promos and unscheduled news flashes, from sign-on until sign-off.” The Canadian Human Rights Commission was established in 1977 by the government of Canada. ...


The ruling recognized that “there will inevitably be glitches with respect to the delivery of captioning” but that “the rule should be full captioning.” In a negotiated settlement to avoid appealing the ruling to the Federal Court of Canada, CBC agreed to commence 100% captioning on CBC Television and Newsworld beginning November 1, 2002.[16] CBC Television and Newsworld are apparently the only broadcasters in the world required to caption the entire broadcast day. However, published evidence asserts that CBC is not providing the 100% captioning ordered by the Tribunal.[17] The Federal Court of Canada, more properly known as the Federal Court and the Federal Court of Appeal, is the court system set up by the Canadian national government to resolve disputes that arise under the national governments jurisdiction. ...


In 2004, retired Canadian Senator Jean-Robert Gauthier, a hard-of-hearing person, filed a complaint with the Canadian Human Rights Commission against Radio-Canada concerning captioning, particularly the absence of real-time captioning on newscasts and other live programming. As part of the settlement process, Radio-Canada agreed to submit a report on the state of captioning, especially real-time captioning, on Radio-Canada and RDI.[18] The report, which was the subject of some criticism, proposed an arrangement with Cité Collégiale, a community college in Ottawa, to train more French-language real-time captioners[19][20] The Honourable Jean-Robert Gauthier (born October 22, 1929) is a retired Canadian politician. ...

English-language specialty networks owned or co-owned by CBC, including bold and the documentary, have the lower captioning requirements typical of larger Canadian broadcasters (90% of the broadcast day by the end of both networks’ licence terms[21][22]).

"Beyond the Red Wall"

In November 2007, the CBC replaced their documentary Beyond the Red Wall: Persecution of Falun Gong at the last minute with a rerun episode regarding President Pervez Musharaf in Pakistan. Originally, the broadaster had said to the press that "the crisis in Pakistan was considered more urgent and much more news-worthy", but sources from within the network itself had stated the Communist Party of China had called the Canadian Embassy and demanded repeatedly that the program be taken off the air. The documentary in question was to air on Tuesday, November 6, 2007 on CBC Newsworld, but was replaced.[24] Falun Gong, (Traditional Chinese: ; Simplified Chinese: ; Hanyu Pinyin: ; literally Practice of the Wheel of Law) also known as Falun Dafa, (Traditional Chinese: ; Simplified Chinese: ; Hanyu Pinyin: ; lit. ...
